I was recently in a check-out line and saw a bottle of “Crack”. I had to look. The clever description made it impossible to resist. So , what is “Crack”? Well, it’s not what you’re thinking (I would never condone drugs). This is a hair care miracle. Named Crack for it’s addictive, habit-forming properties, this cream does everything you need it to do. Formulated with acai extract and silk proteins, this product moisturizes and protects hair from dryness and chemicals, including chlorine. It offers thermal and UV protection, and moisturizes from the hair cuticle to the ends. And this wonder blocks the effects of humidity and eliminates up to 95% of frizz and curl.
As you can see (and no, this isn’t me), it really does work. From the first application, my hair was shiny, more manageable, and very silky. And I can also vouch for the humidity claims. This summer has been one humid mother, and this product keeps my hair smooth all day long. Applied to towel-dried hair, Crack makes blow-drying a snap. The brush glides through hair and makes the whole process much easier. I’m left with hair that has tons of volume and looks smooth as glass. I’m already addicted. But a warning, a little bit goes a long way.

One of the first posts I did was about Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo. In this post I wrote about how awesome their $3 version is compared to much more expensive brands. Well, Suave has done it again. They have launched a phenomenal Keratin Infusion line and I am in love with the dry shampoo.
So, what is keratin? Keratin is a very strong protein that our hair, nails, skin, and teeth are made out of. Damage to the external layer of keratin can cause hair to look dry, brittle, and unhealthy. And if you style with heat, you are going to damage that layer. Basically, the thicker the layer of keratin is, the healthier and shinier our hair is. Keratin Infusion does what it’s name states-it infuses your hair with keratin and helps to protect it from damaging styling tools and products.
What I love about this new dry shampoo is that it makes my hair super shiny. Most dry shampoos leave a whitish residue and a matte finish, but not this one. Formulated with Keralock Technology, this gives your hair a dose of keratin, absorbs oil, refreshes hair, and gives your blowout more longevity. You’re left with healthy looking hair full of volume and shine. And it smells amazing!
Suave Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo $3.49
available at Target and all major drugstores
